“Mexican Looking Food for People who Hate Mexican Food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2012

After reading all the positive reviews of this place, I was incredibly disappointed with Tribeca. Reviews refer to it as "Mexican with a twist", so I knew it wouldn't be traditional; but I wasn't expecting that twist to be "soccer mom decides to use leftover pot roast for taco night."

The food was bland. The salsa tasted like it came straight out of a can of Spaghetti-O's; the meat was like a pulled pork-pot roast- lunchroom mystery meat hybrid; and they seemed to have their cultures mixed up because they used mozzarella cheese and served white rice with peas and carrots as a side.

I don't know if this is a product of a complete misunderstanding of the food preparation or if this is some ignorant attempt to "improve" on a whole culture's traditional menu, but whatever the case, this is a disappointment for people who, when they read "Mexican cuisine" on a sign, expect Mexican cuisine.

“One of the top 2 Mexican Restaurants on Paducah”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2012

Mexican with a little twist. Margareta's are very good. Salsa from very good to exceptional. Food is very good. Service is good ans well as a good atmosphere. Located in the old part of town, building is restored early 1900's.
Rooms are open so it can be a little noisy during peak hours.

“One of the best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2011

We love to eat at Tribeca before a show at the theatre. The food is always delicious and handled in a timely manner. We have always had excellent service too. We eat there regularly and love it. Check out the local artwork being shown there too.
